Color and Smoke

We are seeing the beginning of the beautiful color changes on the mountains,

when we can see the mountains...

this forest fire started a few days ago and can easily 
be seen from our neighborhood.

This view of smoke (no clouds here) is our from our office.
We are safe, staying inside, and praying for those 
men fighting this quickly growing fire.

When there are five Sundays in a month we have the privilege of getting together with like-minded churches across the valley for the 5th Sunday Sing.  It is a delight to fellowship with believers we do not get to see on a regular basis.
We met in the sanctuary of a church in Santaquin this night, where five churches were represented. There are just six rows available to sit in as we gathered.  Enough space to join our voices in chorus praising the God of Heaven. Enough space to focus on why we live and serve in Utah. Enough space to build one another up in the faith.

Often times families or individuals bring their instruments, sing or play for the rest of us, as we rejoice in the goodness of the freedom to meet freely in this place.

Pray for these small Bodies of believers scattered across the State as we carry out the Great Commission.

Out of the Mouth of Babes

Everyone, big or small can have an integral part
in missions.
And how precious to receive words of encouragement 
from the little ones who fearlessly speak their heart.

These are just a few lovely cards we have received from children.

We love that they took time to painstakingly 
print out each letter,
draw each picture,
paste each sticker.

We love that their parents are faithfully 
teaching them about missions.
We love the patience of the parents as the child crafted.

We love that parents helped their little ones 
address and mail the envelopes.

We are so blessed!
